Fair Housing Project

PLEASE NOTE: Walk-in service at CVOEO is currently suspended due to Cornonavirus safety concerns. Fair Housing Project staff are available by phone at (802) 660-3456 and via email at fhp@cvoeo.org.

The Fair Housing Project works to protect and expand the fair housing legal rights of classes of people traditionally subjected to housing discrimination and exclusion. As part of that mission we support state and municipal efforts to Affirmatively Further Fair Housing in order to expand the inclusiveness of housing opportunities in Vermont.

Fair Housing is Your Right!    

If you or your organization needs information, training, referral services regarding fair housing rights, and responsibilities, the FHP can assist you.

The FHP works with our partners to eradicate illegal housing discrimination in Vermont. We provide fair housing education, training, outreach and workshops. We collaborate with agencies such as Regional Planning Commissions to provide workshops for municipal planners, zoning administrators, permitting review boards, housing developers, and business leaders. Municipal officials and volunteer boards can consult with the Fair Housing Project for assessments and training regarding Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing.

Thriving Communities - Building a Vibrant, Inclusive Vermont 

FHP also coordinates Thriving Communities, a statewide collaboration to raise awareness about the economic and social benefits of affordable, inclusive housing. Find out more at www.thrivingcommunitiesvt.org and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
